90s Meat Puppets Too High to Die Rock t-shirt Extra Large
Chest 23.5 in.
Length 30 in.
This vintage band tee pays homage to the grunge rock band Meat Puppets and their 1994 album Too High to Die!, which hilariously spoofs the beloved Ramones album Too Tough to Die from 1984. It's held up great since the 90s and actually appears unworn, saving that old school magic for years to come. Features a gnarly green monster on the back.
Too High to Die! was produced by guitarist Paul Leary of the legendary rock band Butthole Surfers. It's best remembered for singles like "Backwater" and "We Don't Exist". The album peaked at No.1 on Billboard Heatseekers and also charted the US Billboard 200. Core members during this era were Derrick Bostrom, Cris Kirkwood, and Curt Kirkwood.
Meat Puppets came to fruition in 1980 and slowly built a cult following over the decade. Fans saw them experiment with everything from indie psychedelic and folk rock to hardcore punk rock and alternative country.
After a performance of Nirvana covering their track "Lake of Fire" aired on MTV Unplugged, the band was shot into the mainstream and were very well loved. This new exposure tremendously helped their 1994 release of Too High to Die! They would go on to tour and open for iconic acts like Stone Temple Pilots, Soul Asylum, Nirvana, and Blind Melon.
Fits like a modern unisex adult Extra Large. Double sided print, large graphic is on the back. Appears unworn.
